Hanging Flume

1 Hour, DVD or VHS
$19.95 - Call to Order

Amidst the tall tales, half-hidden within deep canyons, is a seldom told story of the Wild West. Braced against weather and tumbling rocks, slowly decaying timbers still cling to precarious heights from overhead rock as if hanging on to the past. Travel back to 1891 when the flume carried water ten miles and, as designed, powered hydraulic cannon at the Montrose Placer Mining Company Claims downstream along the Dolores River.
Here, the boom and bust cycles of gold fever were pitted against the flood and drought cycle of Southwest rivers. Discover the intriguing story of the Hanging Flume. It remains a tribute to imagination and bold ideas, to engineering prowess and persistence, and, most of all, a lasting legacy of human spirit.
